Data from: Combined observational and experimental data provide limited support for facilitation in lichens

Måns Svensson, Alexandro Caruso, Rebecca Yahr, Christopher Ellis, Göran Thor & Tord Snäll
It is increasingly recognized that facilitative interactions can shape communities. One of the mechanisms through which facilitation may operate is when one species facilitates the colonization of another through the exchange of shared symbionts. Lichens are symbiotic associations composed of a mycobiont (lichenised-fungus) and one or two photobionts (algae or cyanobacteria). Different lichen species may have overlapping specificity for photobionts, creating the possibility that facilitation drives lichen community assembly. To investigate whether facilitation occurs in...
